ATPL Pilot Licence

The Integrated Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) program is the right training route for any aviation enthusiast with little or no previous flying experience to professionally get into the industry and begin building a career of an airline pilot.

The program includes all the necessary modules to help you properly master the fundamental pilot’s skills. Meanwhile, the successful completion of the Integrated ATPL course will enable you to proceed with the final training steps before becoming a competent pilot ready to enter the market.

The latest ATPL program has been designed with Area 100 KSA philosophy in mind, which aims to develop Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes from day one at ground school. Competency-based training and assessment will provide trained pilots with more skills and awareness of the flight deck and the ever-changing operational environment. EASA mandates ATOs to incorporate the Area KSA methodology into its initial pilot training syllabus by 2022 January 31st.

In less than two years of intensive aviation training, you will be able to apply for the position of a First Officer at an airline of your choice and explore the aviation industry from the inside.

Area 100 KSA (Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes) is a new subject in theoretical pilot training. It follows a competency-based training and assessment (CBTA) philosophy and is often referred to as a “paradigm shift” that modernizes flight crew training.


The aim of Area 100 KSA is to develop and access student pilots’ certain behavioral competencies besides the technical ones. The competencies based on ICAO core principles are the following: communication, leadership and teamwork, problem-solving and decision-making, situation awareness, workload management, and application of knowledge.


Students will have to complete one formative assessment, two summative ones, and one mental math test during the learning process. The assessments will verify whether the students are fully equipped with the relevant competencies and have developed a “thinking pilot’s” mindset.

Student aftercare program

As part of the student aftercare program, all our ATPL Integrated and CPL Modular training programs’ students get a guaranteed 20% discount for their SEP(land), MEP(land), SEP / IR(A) and MEP / IR(A) rating renewal or revalidation for maintaining licence currency within three years after graduating.


The student aftercare program also ensures that our trainees receive proper mentorship not only while studying but also after they are done with their training. BAA Training academy works with many airlines worldwide, providing their flight crews with professional training. Often airlines ask us to refer our independent students who are about to finish or have just finished studies to them to be offered employment. Our independent candidates work in airlines such as Wizz Air, CityJet, Ryanair, GetJet, SmartLynx, Avion Express, Condor, Royal Air Morocco, Nordica, AirBaltic, Norra, etc.


One more benefit under the scope of the program is a free Pilot Skills Profile Test via AON’s assessment solutions ( This test will be helpful for graduates to understand what valuable skills they have and which ones need improvement. This tool is used by prominent airlines such as SAS, Aer Lingus, Ryanair, etc., to select the best pilots. Therefore, it could be beneficial for pilots to self-access their knowledge and abilities before going to the airlines’ interviews.

    It was a great training session, Paul is a great instructor that keeps us all very interested in learning and there was also an excellent interaction. The content is very useful which we should keep in mind for life. Technically we didn't lose anything of doing this training on a web-based platform, so I think BAA Training should consider this format for the future. I'm very happy with your support and with the training I received.

    Eurico from Portugal,

    BAA Training indeed could offer everything I was looking for: a competitive price, beautiful aircraft to fly, job security as a First Officer with SmartLynx at the end of my training, and young, competent, open and always helpful staff and the Management.

    Patrizio Pochetti,
    SmartLynx Cadet

    Being a part of BAA Training is a great experience! I appreciate the quality of the instructors and facilities. Also it is so good to be sure that I can always count on the help of the staff. Moreover, I like the way the airline is checking our progression which is quite promising for the future. They truly care about their cadets!

    Arthur Biberian ,
    SmartLynx Cadet

    Instructors at BAA Training are professionals sharing the best experience and knowledge with students, indeed. The staff is also very friendly and ready to help handle any issue. I would really recommend BAA Training for future pilots willing to have the best and up-to-date knowledge as well as experience for their next step carrier.

    Tomas Miežis,
    ATPL theory student

    By combining pilot training with bachelor studies, you gain double advantage. With this study program you not only get pilot license, but bachelor degree as well, which will be a huge advantage on your CV not mentioning your professional experience.

    Marians Purmalis,
    Aviation Management student

    Regarding the training program with BAA Training I'm really happy about the idea to have our flying season in the summer right after the theory course and before the other theory course in autumn starts. It allows us to have a "break" and flying reminds us why we are doing the training. Even though the theory is the hard part of a pilot training, I still really liked to do it at BAA Training, mainly because our ground instructors did their best to make the theory easier by being really patient and available whenever we need them.

    Marvin Germaini,
    Wizz Air Cadet

    Wizz Air Cadet training program is prepared by professionals and adjusted to let us start our job of dream as fast as possible. The schedule is tight but this is necessary to complete the training within the given time. The instructors are experienced people with passion for flying. The way they share their knowledge with us made our way of becoming professional pilots much easier

    Łukasz Laskowski,
    Wizz Air Cadet

    I chose the Integrated ATPL, because it's effective - I was able to finish it in just over 1,5 years. I found all the instructors to be very helpful and they really put energy and time into teaching both the theory and the flying part.

    Per Ljung,
    Boeing 737 Pilot

    From the very beginning I knew that being an instructor requires special skills, knowledge and patience that were a challenge for me. Although the Flight Instructor course lasted only a few weeks, I found the professional guidance and training on all fronts. This allowed to pass the knowledge and skills to the new generation of future airline pilots.

    Abdelrahman Mowafi ,
    Flight Instructor at BAA Training

    During my flying season I had an opportunity to fly with many instructors, learn from their different experience, which shared with me. So in the end I could say that I managed to become a cadet pilot only with BAA Training instructors’ help.

    Marija Vaiciulionyte ,
    Student at BAA Training

    Not only BAA Training is growing fast, but it also cares about every single student! Flight instructors and examiners are really friendly and have great experience. Also, they speak fluent English or even other languages.

    Dovydas Valadkevicius,
    Student at BAA Training

    Sincere thanks to all my instructors, managers and everyone else supporting me throughout my training. I wish the best of luck to all my colleagues and the future students joining the dream maker (aka BAA Training).
